Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Data collected through Minnesota's mandatory statewide reporting system indicate that prevention of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers continues to be a challenge, particularly for patients who require the use of stabilization collars or other immobilizers, respiratory equipment, orthotics, and tubing. This article describes the process of identifying a pattern of device-related pressure ulcers through statewide pressure ulcer reports and developing a set of recommendations for prevention.
